Posted: Updated:

Terrence Holley was arrested over the weekend after allegedly robbing the Marathon gas station on National Road in Wheeling. 

According to the clerk, a man matching Holley's description entered the gas station Saturday night and appeared to be in line to make a purchase. When the clerk opened the cash drawer, the suspect reportedly demanded the money then reached into his waistband and allegedly threatened to shoot the clerk. The suspect then allegedly grabbed the money and fled the scene in a white Dodge Avenger and headed West on National Road.

Police on Wheeling Island saw a vehicle matching the description from the robbery and attempted to pull the driver over. The driver then fled into Ohio and began driving north on Route 7 into Martins Ferry. Multiple law enforcement agencies including Wheeling Police, Martins Ferry Police, West Virginia State Police and the Ohio County Sheriff pursued the suspect.

The suspect then turned onto Broadway Street in Martins Ferry and jumped out of the vehicle and began to flee on foot. Wheeling Police were finally able to apprehend the suspect inside a residence on Broadway Street where he was identified as Terrence Holley and handed over to Martins Ferry Police.

Holley is currently in the custody of Martins Ferry Police facing charges of burglary, fleeing, and violating a protective order. He's awaiting extradition to Wheeling where he's facing charges of first degree robbery and felony fleeing.
